Personalize Emails With Customer-Centric Designs
You can use Canva to personalize emails to your customers. If, for example, they like a certain design of ours, we can use Canva to craft an email with that design aimed at them to help convince them to take the next step. Then, we take that design and send it to Mailchimp through Canva, directly enabling us to send beautiful, personalized emails to our customers without having to use multiple apps or programs.
